Why is natural marriage good?

Natural is better than unnatural, right? Frank Turek in his op-ed titled “Natural Marriage is Not Bigotry, It’s Biology” writes:

The real reason governments have an interest in promoting natural marriage because only natural marriage perpetuates and stabilizes society. Strong marriage laws encourage men and women to procreate and then stay together to mother and father their children. That benefits children and all of society because children raised in biological two-parent homes tend to do better and cause society much less trouble than children raised in other situations.

Why is this so? Because men and women are different. Mothering and fathering are different. A mother brings unique benefits to her child that a father cannot provide and vice versa.

Here is my simple and powerful case for marriage the way nature intended.
